Materials

  • Small piece of stiff paper or cardboard
  • Red, white, black, bright and dark blue felt
  • Blue sock
  • Fabric glue
  • Scissors
Tip: A youth-sized sock is more manageable for little hands.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Cut and glue

    From the cardboard, cut a small oval for the mouth. Cut a piece of red felt in the same size and shape. Glue the red felt to the cardboard. When the glue is dry, fold the oval in half crosswise.

  2. Step 2: "Dress" your sock

    Apply glue to the back of the oval. Slip the sock over your child's hand and have him or her use the toe to "bite" the oval with the end of the sock, holding it in place until it dry.

  3. Step 3: Put a face on your sock

    From the white felt, cut out two round ovals for the eyes. From the black felt, cut two centers for the eyes. Glue the black centers to the white ovals. Let dry. From the dark blue felt, cut a nose and two floppy ears. From the bright blue felt, cut dots for the ears and face.

  4. Step 4: Finishing touches

    Glue on the eyes, nose, ears, and spots onto the puppet—and bark on!

Tip: Adding the cardboard mouth can be awkward. This is a step you can do for your child if he or she is very young.
